The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is now accepting applications for the state's Clean Diesel Grant Program. School districts, municipal authorities, political subdivisions, state agencies, nonprofit entities, corporations and limited liability companies or partnerships incorporated or registered in Pennsylvania that operate diesel fleets are eligible to apply.
The clean diesel program's goal is to improve air quality by decreasing emissions from diesel-powered motor vehicles. The program supports projects that re-power or retrofit fleet vehicles to curb emissions; purchase and install idle-reduction technology; or purchase clean alternative-fuel fleet vehicles. It is funded through an annual allocation from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's State Clean Diesel Program.
Applications will be accepted through June 10. For more information, visit the DEP website and search for keyword ‘clean diesel.’ Fleets can also call Amanda Witman at (717) 787-1323.
